We present a model computing damage costs from drought-induced soil subsidence related to shrinking and swelling soils. The model uses an indicator applicable across different climate regimes. The influence of geology and land use on regional damage levels is taken into account. Simulation results are evaluated at departmental scale, showing a good representation of the regions affected by drought-induced soil subsidence. Substantial differences between simulated and observed damages are however found in some departments. Show more
